Geoff Robb - Spanish Classical Guitarist
Geoff Robb is the founder of Find a Performer and was born into a musical family - he began performing as a street musician in his late teens and early twenties while travelling throughout Europe.
Since then he has played at several hundred weddings, concerts, parties and events across the UK and Ireland and performs on a guitar he made himself with the expert help of luthiers Richard Osborne and Cameron Mobbs.
"Very talented - makes the guitar sound like 2 guitars and a piano" BBC Southern Counties
He studied classical guitarist with Paul Gregory (winner of the International Segovia Prize), and has had tuition from many of the top classical guitarists and has a diploma in jazz. He has performed Vivaldi's 'Concerto for Lute in D' (on the guitar) with The Bath Concertina Orchestra but works mostly as a soloist, playing recitals at arts festivals and guitar festivals across the UK and can often be seen as the ‘warm-up act’ for many international touring guitarists as they pass through Sussex.
“Geoff Robb – an outstanding guitarist. Every song he played was impeccable and his innovative technique was of the highest standard.” The Argus
Geoff is now based in Sussex and enjoys providing beautiful background music, both gentle and entertaining for weddings, corporate events and parties. He specialises in classical music from Spain and Latin America but also includes music that your guests will know and love including arrangements of popular songs.
He is also passionate about writing music - his compositions blend his classical training and interest in healing and meditation with his love of Celtic and Spanish music.
“A sensitive player” – Bath Chronicle
As well as running this website, looking after his 3 kids, performing and composing, Geoff also runs the online store www.guitarcds.net

It was especially kind of you to accommodate our request for you to play a certain piece of music for our singer to sing to which meant you learning another piece of music at short notice.

It was also very easy to book and we had regular email communication with you about our wishes around music. Many thanks for your excellent service which we'd use again." Val and Lynda, Royal Pavilion Brighton, May 2015

Beth, Royal College of Surgeons February 2013
